Role and Agency: PR Internship - One Green Bean

One Green Bean was first established in Sydney in 2007 and over the following decade it became the most awarded PR and content agency in Australia, working with the likes of Uber, Nike, Google, Tourism Australia and Virgin Atlantic.

In 2011, OGB became part of global communications network Havas and facilitated our founder relocating home to the UK, to launch our offices in London. We play in a unique agency sweet spot - an agile, independently spirited, owner-operated agency with the backing and fire power of one of the world’s largest communications groups, Havas. Our clients often call us ‘a big little agency’ and it sums us up perfectly.

We’re looking for a Platformer to join our growing PR team at One Green Bean. We are earned media specialists, creating stories that travel at the speed of share for brands that span travel, food and drink, retail, FMCG and technology. If you love crafting a great story, have a passion for writing and want to work in a team that champions great culture and award-winning creativity in equal measure, you could be exactly the Bean we need.

You’ll work in a cross-matrix team, alongside Account Managers and Account Directors, reporting into your team lead. No one day is ever the same – it’s a brilliant opportunity to get experience with brands in completely different industries and hone your writing, project management and media relations skills.

Our Platformers are a vital part of our team. This is more than just an administrative support role; we’re looking for people hungry to start their careers in PR and become the next gen of comms consultants. An eye for detail is important (from good spelling and grammar to beautifully formatted WIP documents), a passion to learn is a must (you’re a media consumer and keen to attend training to sharpen your skills) and you’re not afraid to share your idea


Writing is a big part of the job
• Press releases, case studies, briefing documents, fact packs, biographies, WIP notes, media invitations, social copy – these are just some of the things you’ll turn your hand to as part of your role.
• We’re looking for people who love to write, who have fantastic attention to detail and can apply feedback to sharpen their written work further.
It’s all about those brilliant basics
• We manage lots of projects and workstreams simultaneously, so it’s important that we nail account management. That means well-written, actionable emails, clear WIPs and WIP notes, well-planned timelines and methodically organised cost budgets and coverage trackers.
• We’re looking for an Account Executive who thrives in a fast-paced environment, wants to get stuck in and is an excellent project manager.
You love creating a great story
• We’re earned media specialists, which means we craft stories that other people will want to share. A lot of work goes into creating truly agenda-setting stories, from the initial brainstorm, sharing it with the client, writing media strategies that consider the different angles and segments and working with suppliers to bring it to life (whether that’s a stunt, photo, celebrity or piece of content). You’ll be involved at every stage of the process.
• We’re looking for someone who loves consuming the news, is clued up on culture, celebrity and trends and gets geekily excited about brand stories that fly.
Building great relationships
• We have fantastic relationships with our clients, suppliers and journalists and spend a lot of time nurturing these relationships to create the best work.
• With 1+ year of experience in PR, you’ll have started to build relationships with media, be keen to expand and strengthen your network and be excited to establish new relationships with clients and suppliers. You’ll be confident pitching stories to journalists on the phone and sharing the updates for which you are responsible in client meetings.
